OK, Who owns it? Fess up!

I stopped by Morton's BMW in Fredricksburg, VA today and right smack in the doorway is a new SOLD K1200S in titan silver and blue. The web pic does not do it justice. The pic is uninteristing; the real bike is amazing. Even the blue wheels look great. Maybe, especially the blue wheels. The black tank looks blacker than the black bike tank.
Congrats if it's yours. The bike is really sharp.

S

I do like the colors but think they went over the top on the huge S logo. Saw one in person a few weeks ago and the S just seemed to dominate the bike.
Just my view of the world.

Nothing a little warm air from a blow dryer couldn't fix in about 2 minutes.

2T: was it you that was going to take the sticker off your pipe? How did that go? Frequently, the labels/logos on pipes are metal jobs that are riveted on. I have the BMW/Laser pipe, and it has a small embossed Laser logo on it. It's not so obtrusive, nor is it removable.

Not much I can do 'cept leave it alone. The rivet holes would need addressing and I, quite frankly, don't mind the HotCam logo anywhere near as much as those ass crack ugly, cheap looking, and tacky K1200R/S side decals. I don't leave dealer stickers or license plate frames on my cars/motorcycles and those decals are 'cold sore on your prom dates mouth' ugly as well . Oh well......2t
